WESTCARE PACIFIC ISLANDS PROGRAMS



The GUAHAN Project
The GUAHAN Project is the Western Pacific's only HIV/AIDS service organization. This project promotes the vital importance of knowing your HIV/AIDS status. It works to reduce shame and stigma associated with getting tested and educates members of at-risk populations on Guam.

We offer confidential HIV/STD testing, counseling, outreach and specialized training throughout the Western Pacific. Hepatitis C rapid testing will be available on site soon.




Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP)
This program provides youth ages 10 - 19 years old with abstinence and contraception information to help prevent teen pregnancies and reduce sexually transmitted infections. It incorporates instruction on three adulthood preparation subjects: Healthy Relationships, Parent-Child Communication, and Educational and Career Success. PATHways uses gender-specific, age-appropriate, evidence-based programming with a Positive Youth Development approach in its program delivery. This program is currently implemented in Guam and the Republic of Palau. It is funded through the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Grant from the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), a division of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.




Guam Healthy Relationship Education Program (GHREP)
The Guam Healthy Relationship Education Program (GHREP) is a culturally responsive program on the island of Guam serving young adults ages 18-24. Our program is part of a network of 121 organizations providing comprehensive healthy relationship skills and marriage education services to improve the overall well-being of children and their parents. This grant is administered by the Administration for Children and Families under their Healthy Marriage and Fatherhood initiative which seeks to improve the lives of children.




Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF)
Our mission is to provide supportive services for low or very low-income Veteran families residing in or transitioning to permanent housing. Services are designed to increase the housing stability of Veteran families that are at-risk of or experiencing homelessness. SSVF provides local veterans with case management, counseling services, veteran advocacy, housing assistance, a computer lab, and workshops.
